WTF? Flynn's dimwit son just posted a column about his dad's plans to control ALL US intelligence [View all]

Found this via a tweet from Laura Rozen:


The column Flynn Jr links to is by Thierry Meyssan, a 9/11 truther. Thierry just says this is based on "sources" but the important thing here is that Flynn Jr tweeted it without comment or refutation, using Meyssan's title, "General Flynn’s Proposals to Reform Intelligence." You'd expect a loudmouth like Flynn Jr to object if he found anything in it objectionable. But he simply copies the title and link to Twitter.

And what Meyssan says is that Flynn's plan is to get rid of the post of Director of National Intelligence and have all the intelligemce agencies "accountable to General Flynn personally."

As for Pompeo, Trump's pick to head the CIA -- Meyssan writes, supposedly based on what his sources have told him about Flynn's plans, that Pompeo's nomination "would have been conditional upon him agreeing" with those plans, and Pompeo "should behave like an obedient soldier."

I have no idea whether they have any real chance of carrying off this coup in the intelligence community.

But Michael Flynn Jr (who has been his father's aide) obviously wants people to believe this is what his father wants.
